, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, finishing the job. president obama is back on u.s. soil fresh from his well-received trip to the middle east and today he jumped right back into the fight for second-term agenda, demanding that congress take action on immigration. >> we've taken real action from congress, bipartisan groups in the house and senate, working to tackle this challenge. i applaud them for that. we are making progress but we've got to finish the job because this issue is not new. emp pretty much knows what is broken. everybody knows how to fix it. we've all proposed solutions and we've got a lot of white papers and studies. we just at this point have got to work up the political courage to do what is required to be done. >> political courage. the president was talking about immigration and we're going to get into that a little later in the show. but he also could have been talking about another big issue where we're seeing momentum. gun control. today we learned the president will hold a series of campaign-style rallies, calling for tougher gun laws and n

, president obama in the middle east waiting for proof that syria has used chemical weapons. if he gets it, will he use military force? >>> the beast breaks down. president obama's armored limo can with stand a chemical attack but apparently not. the wrong kind of fuel. and critics are calling for him to come back to earth. but the house budget chairman paul ryan pushes ahead with his plan to balance the nation's books with major spending cuts. he'll join us live this hour. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room. . >>> it may be president obama's first official visit to israel but all eyes right now are on syria. the president says he's trying to find out if the damascus regime has crossed a u.s. red line by using chemical weapons against syrians. >> we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessar
everyone and welcome in, this is "the kudlow report." obama arrives in israel to cement our relationship with our great allie and he and netanyahu must deal with series issues. president obama is said that the use of chemical weapon this is in syria would be a game-changer. quote unquote, now back here the markets get back to rally mode. but, did the fed-head ever so subtly indicate an every so slightly less easy posture? that is my take and we will debate it later on. here is something that investors and businesses and consumers do not want to hear, it's a new tax on the internet. even downloads from ituness, who thinks that is a good idea? not me, here is good news "the kudlow report" begins right now. president obama in israel for the first same in his presidency, securing the relations with the allie in the middle east, here is what he had to say when greeted by benjamin netanyahu. it's in our fundamental security interest to stand with israel. it makes us both stronger and more prosperous and makes the world a better place. >> so question is, what exactly is the president hoping to
ever before. with all of this mind, i think it's safe to say president barack obama would pose the following question he may answer it slightly different today. >> what have you accomplished? >> well, a couple of key things, i think that we've restored america's standing in the world. that's confirmed by polls. >> sean: the president may want to check the polls again, in the three plus years that have passed since he made that statement, america' standing has diminished. why? because he's been interested in playing golf with tiger, palling around with jay-z and beyonce and now four years of his presidency we're able to report for the first time our commander-in-chief has finally stepped foot in israel. welcome, mr. president. earlier today the president met face-to-face with both israeli president shimone peres and benjamin bb netanyahu and took questions from his friends in the lame stream media and did not have an explanation why he's done nothing to promote peace in the middle east. >> meeting none of these challenges will be easy, ultimately it's a hard problem. it is a har
after liberals were dancing in the streets over president obama's reelection they are now crying in their beer and some don't even drink beer but they started. because they are are now realizeing that their taxes have gone up. way up in some cases. and obama care which was supposed to save them $2,500 a year is busting their budgets as the cost of their healthcare is soaring. ultraliberal comedian bill maher must have met with his accountant and gotten his tax bill. here is what he said. >> rich people i'm sure you would agree with this actually do pay the freight in the country. something like 70%. and here in california i just want to say liberals you could actually lose me. it is outrageous what we are paying. over 50%. i'm willing to pay my share but it is ridiculous. >> mike: like he realizes between the federal tax hike and california's highest income tax in the nation he is going to now be paying about 60% of his income in taxes. and democratic strategist donna brazil who i really respect and like noted that her health insurance was sharply higher than before obama care an

, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that actually balances the budget. let's be clear, the democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget i think were out of step of where the american people are. the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. i didn't come here for a fancy title or big office. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream that i had, not some mountain of debt. that's why republicans are standing with the american people and working to balance he federal budget. >> there's been talk about these budgets here and budgets aren't binding. do you think that budgets cause -- budget process that they are essentially political weapons -- j
at five. >> great stuff. president obama just arriving a short time ago at the museum. day three of his trip to israel. and that is the state's official memorial to victims of the holocaust. elizabeth prann is live for us in washington with more on what's happening today. hi there, elizabeth. >> good morning, heather. president obama's trip continues on his final day in israel and what the president did was just as important as his message. he visited the famous holocaust memorial just as you said as well as a number of other symbolic spots such as the grave site of rabin a prime minister known as a symbol of the peace pro-prospects. he took the his time to pay his respects. >> the president reiterated to prime minister benjamin netanyahu the importance of peace and the vision of two states. he said washington doesn't consider it a continued settlement activity to be constructive. he said visiting this week is to listen and reinforce support. he also continues to keep a tough stance on iran. he repeated the u.s. position saying, quote: all options are on the table stopping iran from req
is the name of the game in washington as president obama and republicans seek an illusive middle ground on spending and taxes. so far, the game is not going very well. >> is the grand bargain dead? >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. >> the president has sounded equally pessimistic about bridging the divide. >> it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue, or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or gut medicaid, if that's the position, then we're probably not going to be able to get a deal. >> while there's not much agreement there are plenty of ideas. washington is awash in budgets. no less than six plans are currently circulating on the hill. there is the plan from senate democrats, or the murray plan. it includes a one-to-one ratio of spending cuts and tax increaseses, as well as short-term stimulus. then there's the house democrats' budget, which pushes for $200 billion more
, look. they got barack obama on there, right? except it's not barack obama! like this history channel thing. >> what is this? >> he is also not playing jesus. >> there is satan to the left and buzz feed reported last night that satan looks a little bit too much like barack obama. >> that's the complaint, i hope? that is the complaint. >> well, that's an incredible story. >> classic news lead. >> can i actually do a real story? >> i'm watching "way too early" with thomas roberts. i guess hbo did something with george bush's head on the spike. >> i think people have too much time on their hands. could we start with the markets? are you kidding me? >> there is george bush. >> what is going on here? alex! put that down! >> they had to apologize for that. >> do you want people to watch this show? seriously. stupid. >> that's not juiceesus, it's s. people were into that in the bar. >> i'm going to move on. >> they were the only ones like in high school cheering for the devil. >> i'm going to try to move on and save you all from yourself. we begin with the markets. big repercussions this mor

obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republ
.4%. and the budget balances. but president obama says he's not interested in balancing the budget. my goal is not to chase a balanced budget, he says. and i know my colleagues, they use the word "balanced." now, i said earlier that they used the word "balanced" tonight 14 times. i've been corrected. 24 times, i believe, already tonight my colleagues have used the word "balanced" in relation to this budget that never balances and never will balance. because they're not concerned about balancing the budget. that is not what it's about with them. they think bringing the budget into balance, like most states have to do, all cities and counties have to do, that this is austerity. oh, we can't have austerity. that might hurt the government, somebody might lose their job, they no longer would be paid to do some worthless job that doesn't produce anything, but we have to keep paying them anyway, because it would be austere to cut that. senator harkin said in february, "we have the richest nation in the world. if we're so rich, why are we so broke?" is it a spending problem? no, it's because we hav
:00 in the west. so glad you are with us on this saturday morning. president obama is headed home on air force one. he wrapped up the first official overseas trip of his second term in jordan. on his final day in jordan he played tourist sightseeing on the ancient city of petra and stopped in israel and the west bank during the four-day visit. let's get to jessica yellin live this morning in jordan. is the president going to come home with diplomatic cues to break about? >> reporter: he is because of the low expectations you mentioned. in israel he seemed to have a breakthrough with prime minister benjamin netanyahu on a personal level. they've had an icy history and they seemed like buddies this trip after two days together. the president also wanted to persuade israeli people that he's personally committed to their security and he understands the jewish history of persecution. reviews out of israel show on that front he largely succeeded especially after that big speech he gave to israeli youth. those are the intangibles. the more concrete accomplishment of the trip, he brokered a truce between
minutes after the hour. here's quick look at the headlines for you. a few hours from now president obama will nominate thomas harris as the new labor secretary. he heads the justice department civil rights division. he faced criticism for giving misleading testimony to the u.s. mission on civil rights. he would replace hilda sill lease. instead of eating while you were distracted you are consuming more calories. people who eat meals or snacks watching tv playing games or reading tend to eat more. >> i do believe that study. >> the u.s. postal service is $16 billion in debt and stopping saturday delivery to stay athroat they say. you wouldn't know it by the way the agency is spending millions to send workers to a lavish conference in california and it is happening this week. we have an inside look at the event. >> here at the annual postal forum executives will meet with thousands of shippers and those in the direct mail industry. and then everyone gets to have a good time in stan fran. there's a guolf outing dance an food from the fisherman's wharf and chinatowchinatown. the travel exhib
jerroldepresented j nadler president obama's news conference yesterday with u.s. policy towards syria and what could signal u.s. involvement in that nation. here is the president yesterday. [video clip] >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria, you have a war zone. you have information that is filtered out, but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was the nature of the incident, what can we document, and what can we prove. i have instructed my teams to work mostly -- closely with all countries of the region and international organ -- organizations to find out exactly whether or not this red line was crossed. at thisote without point having all the facts there me, that we know syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. inknow that there are those the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons, if necessary, to protect themselves. of anyeply skeptical claim that, in fact, it was the opposition that use chemical weapons. e
and balances within a decade. president obama and the congressional democrats say that they want to get america back to work and support a balanced approach to our fiscal problems. but they also support record deficits and budgets that never, ever balance. instead of government living within its means, the democrats' budgets raise taxes to fuel more spending and in turn millions of americans remain out of work. the only place that these failed policies will lead is to higher unemployment, depressed wages and a crushing debt crisis. the majority of americans are not satisfied with the current state of our economy and they're not hopeful about the future. and who can plame them? i believe the american people -- blame them? i believe the american people deserve more than the status quo and i believe the american people deserve leaders here in washington who are honest with themselves and their constituents about the challenges facing our nation and what it's going to take to get our nation back on track. 30 seconds? mr. ryan: another 30 seconds. the chair: the gentlelady is recognized for an addit
was removed, for sure. great elation that said obama hussain was removed, for sure. ddamthis was -- that said do hussein was removed, for sure. at the government level, the strategic agreement is still in place, but it would not be wrong to say that the government of see at the moment does not the american presence or influence as an integral part of its political calculation. it was a few years ago when political decisions were taken. they always factored in what the americans fought and that was certainly true. you probably remember when your the ambassador to baghdad. i do not think that is the situation now. i would even ventured to say that there is more wait for what the iranian regime things about political decisions in iraq, whether it is forming a cabinet any other major political decision. thathat does not mean americans have lost all possible influence. i think americans still have a considerable amount of soft power. i think they should use it not only with the government, and they are actually using it, to be fair, in support of civil society. i think in supporting the segment of
unexpected thing of all this man obama. he descended from a distant star to blind the masses with his light and it was greater than hers so once again, hillary had to wait. will she go for it again or is it her fate to fade into the pages of missed opportunity, bad timing and wrbroken promises? what do you think, reverend sharpton? >> she has to be thinking this is something i've dreamed of to be the first woman president and has to be my shot, but she also has to say look what happened last time. something totally unseen, barack obama came about. can that happen again? she also has to look at what does biden do. most people feel he won't run if she does. you don't know. what about andrew cuomo do? dan can say many of her people that would do the work, you are talking about where the players 20 years ago during the clinton years you have eight years of obama, new leadership around the country that don't have the same affection for the clintons that her school or her age class does, how does she get them enthusiastic enough to face a republican opponent if they can come up with a formidable
taxes, it would curb spending by repealing obama care and eliminate the deficit in ten years. $4.6 trillion in cuts. zero chance of passing in the democratic-controlled senate, it's dead on arrival. >> lawmakers in the house and senate approved legislation to fund the government through the end of september. that avoids the risk of a partial federal shutdown. in the process, they are on spring break for a couple weeks. what's your take on this? >> my take is the whole financial dysfunction of our congress is mind blow iing. you look at this week. let's say frederick, maryland, where there's air traffic control that will be shut. a tower that was built by the stimulus money. so stimulus money went into this tower. the government saying it's a priority. and the the government because of its dysfunction saying we have to shut is down. that's a perfect representation, i think, of how washington is not doing its job. we can't even pass a budget. it can't even run the books. there's no strategy. when you look at some of the spending cuts, you see a lack of a strategy in american financ
fire. president obama arrived this morning in the west bank. his message here, the importance of peace between the israelis and the palestinians. but fears of war have dominated the trip specifically fears that iran is dangerously close to getting a nuclear weapon. >> the greatest danger is a nuclear iran. >> in order to stop iran's nuclear programs peacefully diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of action. >> reporter: when it comes to iran, the president says the u.s. stands firm with israel. >> we agree on our goal. we do not have a policy of containment when it comes to a nuclear iran. our policy is prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: even if it takes a military strike against iran. >> i will repeat all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> reporter: president obama has had a frosty relationship with prime minister netanyahu, but on this trip both men have been determined to show that they are staunchal lies, maybe even friends. obama jokin
. >> next, former and current obama administration officials discussed the effect of new health care of new health care law can have on hiv/aids. the panel also looks at some of the challenges of implementing the law. the center for american progress hosted this hour and 20 minute event. >> good morning, everybody. my name is neera tanden and i'm the president of the center for american progress. thank you for joining us this morning for this important discussion of how health reform is addressing the needs of gay and transgender communities and people living with hiv. reforming america's health care system is a massive undertaking. one of the president's advisers on health reform, i know that as we gear up for health care reform it will touch the lives of every american. that effort means it will touch the lives of the lesbian, gay and transgender community as welcome as those people living with hiv. the united states currently has 9 million -- 19 people living with hiv. hiv epidemic continues to raise and marginalize. like the uss russell, this topic is diverse. gay and transgender people
off his middle east trip, president obama turns his focus to immigration. hosting a naturalization ceremony for active duty members of the military today at the white house. >> after avoiding the problem for years, the time has come to fix it once and for all. the time has come for comprehensive sensible immigration reform. >>> up in arms. the nra blasts mayor michael bloomberg's plan to pressure senators in key states ahead of next month's gun control vote. >> 90% of the public wants something and their representatives vote against that. common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that. >> he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public, they don't want him in their restaurants, they don't want him in their homes, they don't want him telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want him telling them what self-defense firearms to own. he can't buy america. >>> at the supreme court, dozens brave the cold and snow for their chance to witness this week's historic back-to-back cases on same-sex marriage. and the cinder-fellas
that night that according to lindsay graham who told fox news the obama administration is being unusually tight lipped compared to other events. >> you got to remember this administration leaked every detail of the bin laden raid. though telled old us about seal 6. they are refuse to go give us the identity and allowing congress to be interviewed. >> four died in the terror attack. shawn smith and former navy seal glen daughterty and tyrone woods and ambassador chris stevens. >> information begins to emerge as we learn the security agents and one state department contractor who were among the injured may be being asked not to talk. lindsay graham tells fox news the injured survivors may have been quote told to be quiet. he says the house should investigate. >> i am going to hold up the business of the senate until they get the survivors on record. i have talked to a couple. the story is chilling they are scared to death to come forward without some institutional support. >> members the house intelligence committee says it's still too early to say whether or not they will investigate. >> s
2050, we'll be a majority/minority country. and in both 2008 and 2012, president obama won a combined 80% of the votes of of all minority groups. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic, community or region of this country. so here are some actions that we're going to take. one, establish senior-level advisory councils for hispanic, african-american and asian-americans that will serve as working groups to share best practices and have a constant dialogue in each community. two, establish swearing-in citizenship teams to introduce new citizens to the gop after naturalization ceremonies. first impressions count. three, at the recommendation of the project, talk regularly and openly with groups in which we've had minimal contact in the past. the urban league, the naacl, la raza. four, work with state parties and sister committees to improve the program for minority candidates. the report underscores the need for greater recruitmentment -- recruitment. five, hire communication staff to promote the minority leaders in our party and bolster the publications that appeal to ethn
>> shepard: three minutes to cavuto. president obama's limo is bulletproof and bomb proof but can break down from time to time. witness this. a photo of the armored suv the president is using today. there's always a backup vehicle on standby when the president travels, obviously. if need be, a mechanic is ready to pop the hood. this is video of the limo being towed. the driver didn't know if it was a fuel mixup behind the incident but that's possible much the secret service does not know what caused the breakdown. breaking news, breaking news. then there's this. we wrap it up in "studio b." do not mess with bingo in kentucky. an 18-year-old named austin holy walked into a bingo hall south of cincinnati in northern kentucky last month and yelled bingo! apparently bingo games can get rough. an off-duty police officer was working security and the officer promptly arrested waily for disorderly conduct. he had his day in court last week. the judge could have sentenced him to 90 days in jail and $250 fine but let him go with six months probation and ordered him not to say the word bingo
obama are going to see 100% premium increases. >> neil: what is the $63 fee about? >> that's something that is hitting employers. a lot of surprises for employers. >> neil: a identify they have not to pay. >> just rolls out in november. among the thousands of new regulation. employers are frantic because they're coming so late in the game. le. >> neil: be part of the plan or not. but it's a fee -- >> for every employee -- every dependent who is covered with insurance. thirdly, patients are bracing for big change because this law is paid for more than half of it is paid for with medicare. so hospitals are already pulling back, laying off nurses, spreading the nursing care thinner so patients know they're going to wait longer for care. i'm already advising patients, if you know you're going into the hospital, try to cobble together enough money to hire a private duty nurse the first night when you need help. >> why do you say that? >> there will be fewer nurses on the floor and you're going to wait longer when you press the button for help. seniors are noticing the difference because the
looking at lgbt health and hiv and a portal to act. we started off with president obama giving a historic speech speech in 2011 at ending the aids epidemic at some point in our lifetime. this was quite a moment. the moment of opportunity and optimism that i want to start with. the reason the president obama made that statement is because we have a combination that together is something that could turn the tide on epidemics. we also have a national strategy that the white house about a couple of years ago and provides a roadmap. more than a million people are living with hiv in the united states. for the last decade, they have been at the same level and perhaps more alarmingly, you and infections are rising by those who represent 66% of their infections in the united states. the impact is quite alarming. they have a heavy reliance on medicaid. most are not on treatment. yet, as i was alluding to, there is new data that shows we can actually get to what many of us are calling treatment that is scaled up. it has made a huge difference in helping people live much longer and healthier and has
this country we had a vigorous debate. president obama laid out his vision of how we deal with some of our big challenges with respect to the economy and the budget. governor romney did the same thing. and both of them said the american people faced a very important and fundamental choice. and the american people chose. they chose to support president obama's vision of accelerating economic growth, putting more people back to work, taking a shared responsibility approach to our long-term deficits so we bring them down in a balanced smart way and they rejected the idea that we're going to move the economy forward by giving windfall tax cuts to the very wealthiest in the country and the benefits of that would trickle down and lift everybody up. they rejected that lopsided approach that balance the budgets on the backs of everybody but the folks at the very top. balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education by slashing important investments. in that category of spending we make these important investments for our country and our future, they double the cut from the sequester. so those ar
about that. thank you very much. >>> president obama is wrapping up his tour of the middle east this morning. natalie, good morning to you. >> good morning, everyone. that's right. the president is wrapping up his three-day visit to israel as he heads to jordan. nbc chief correspondent is traveling with the president. delivered some remarks that have a poignant reminder of some issues israel may be dealing with today. >> we have the choice to acquiesce to evil or make real our solemn vow, never again. we had the choice to ignore what happens to others or to act. >> reporter: the president heads to bethlehem to visit the church of the nativity and heads to aman, jordan, where he'll have one on one meetingings with king abdullah, on the docket the middle east peace process. >>> the government will stay up and running through september, but some $85 billion in spending cuts have put hundreds of thousands of government workers on temporary furloughs. thursday night the house passed the spending authorization that now heads to the president for his signature. >>> it turns out our uni
of the healthiest economies we have had. president obama should do likewise. work with the republicans in congress together to put forward a plan that will in fact balance a budget and help american families enjoy real prosperity and a much more secure retirement. >> good morning. this is a good week for house republicans. this is also a week of contrasts. years.get balances in 10 their budget never balances. and raises $1 worth of taxes. i think the question for the american people s. which budget actually helps? which helps people? well, i would say that a balanced budget is going to help grow our economy and provide the certainty needed that so many people out there looking for the government to do the very same thing they are having to do at home. which budget helps those who are in need? our budget provides a prescription to save the social safety nets of medicare, medicaid. theirs doesn't. theirs brings about the demise of those programs. which budget brings about the kind of tax reform that people want in this country? lower rates, fair and simpler tax code. our budget does that. theirs rai
, president obama has missed the budget deadline more than any other president. he's now missed it four out of five times. in the 90 years between 1923 and 2013, president obama is the only president to miss the deadline two years in a row. he's the only president who missed the deadline three out of four years in his first term and he holds the record for the longest delay, 98 days, maybe he's -- maybe that's the record, he's trying to beat. so i want to commend again my colleagues in the congressional black caucus for bringing forward a budget. i think it's extremely important that we have all sorts of different ideas out here on the floor to be able to debate and have people take a perspective on and have the opportunity to vote yay or nay on, i would respectfully suggest, however, that their budget move this is country in the wrong direction, not the right direction and we'll urge opposition to their budget proposalened i reserve the balance of our time. the chair: the gentleman reserves, the gentleman from virginia. mr. scott: i yield to a member of the budget committee, ms. moore. the
:30 for a few votes on measures debated earlier. we'll have live coverage. --sident obama noting to beated thomas perez the next labor secretary. here is that announcement. >> ladies and gentlemen, the president of the united states, accompanied by thomas perez. >> thank you. thank you. thank you. everybody have a seat. as i have said before, my top priority as president is doing everything we need to do to make sure we are growing our economy and that we are strengthening our middle class. as i said in the state of the union address, every day we should ask ourselves three questions -- one, how do we make sure america is a magnet for good jobs, two, how do we need to equip people for good jobs, and, three, how do we make sure that hard work pays off in a decent living? have are the challenges i instructed my team and cabinet to focus on, and a position that is instrumental to tackling this challenges is having an outstanding secretary of labor. thanking begin by hilda solis and her entire team, [applause] including the acting secretary harris, for the outstanding work they have been doing
us into iraq. unfortunately we have not learned from all we lost in iraq. as president obama has also committed us to an additional 10 years in afghanistan, thanks to a strategic security agreement he made without congress voting on it or even debating it. this weekend i read two articles that really spoke to the corruption happening in afghanistan. one was an a.p. article i read in my hometown paper titled "u.s. helicopter crashes in afghanistan killing one" and the other is from "the new york times" titled "afghans protest u.s. special forces: complaints about night rage spark calls for withdrawal." i'll quote from the first article. the crash has come as united states officials are grappling with tough talk from president karzai whose recent anti-american rhetoric has complicated relations at a time when international troops are withdrawing from the war. the article continues saying, karzai stated this week by accusing the united states and the taliban of being in conclusion on two daily suicide bombings last weekend in an effort to create instability and give security forces an ex
former and current obama administration officials discuss how the health care law affects the lgbt community. and impacts coverage of people with hiv. >> good morning, everybody. my i'm the president of the center of american progress. thank you for joining us on the important progress health reform addressing the needs of lgbt lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and peopling with hiv. it's a massive undertaking. i can attest to this as one of the president's advisers on health reform. i know, as we gear up for health reform it will touch the lives of every american. and the sheer skill the effort means that it will touch the lives of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community as well as well as people living with hiv. the united states is home to at least 9 million gay similarly the -- rage in communities such as communities of color and transgender communities. like the u.s. as a whole the population are diverse in term of race, income, immigration status and age. gay and transgender people and beam hiv live in all corners of the country and they come from families o
? the president of the united states, barack obama. so he signed it. it's his document. and we agreed to raise the debt ceiling ceiling $2.1 trillion ae agreed to reduce spending over ten years, $2.1 trillion. before the ink was dry, the president was proposing to eliminate the cuts he agreed to. he's been fighting to eliminate those cuts from the beginning. and they're really not cuts. they're simply -- if they were properly applied, it would reduce the growth of spending and not cut spending actually at all. so the committee that was supposed to find all the cuts failed. the sequester came into law. it's an antimilitary provision. it was put in by jack lew, a very liberal member of the president's, at that time, chief of staff for offic office of mot and budget. the president seems to be quite happy to see these cuts fall on the defense department. he seems to be happy to have this happen. why do you say that? i say, because he's done nothing to philadelphia it. -- to fix it except demand something that he has no right to demand. that is, to violate this agreement and raise taxes and spend m
that and renew it. we are very pleased president obama and his administration have been so open, so available, and so encouraging. that caters to people with different traditions and cultures and aspirations. there is more that unites us than what divides us. it is the responsibility of those of us who have the privilege of holding political office to the -- to defend, under pennsylvania, and reinforce principles, values, and institutions, to show real leadership where real leadership is demanded. is characterized by openness, respect, and the wish to harness and nurture relationships with those within troubled communities to have the will and ability to walk to resolve issues peacefully using politics to succeed where violence never can. in the drafting of the budget we wereeuropean union, able to get included in their for expenditure on peace projects and divided lines in fragile communities in areas of northern island where young pennsylvania -- young men in particular have been led the wrong way. it can build a virtuous cycle of respectful and honest conversations, which gives communities
.3 trillion in new debt over the next decade. since president obama took office four years ago, he has added more than $6 trillion to our national debt. for four years, he's run budget deficits over a trillion dollars each and every one of those four years. now senate democrats want to throw good money after bad and add another $7 trillion on top of that. the president has simply wasted too much of the american taxpayers' money. the american people have been stuck with an enormous bill, mr. president, as well as an anemic economy and economic growth which has been very slow. the american people think more than half of all washington spending is wasted and that democrats can't find a single dollar that they think should be saved. democrats actually want to increase washington spending by another $645 billion. this budget would spend $46 trillion over the next ten years. apparently president obama thinks that the only things that need to be cut from our budget are white house tours. well, republicans and the american people know that there is a lot more that we could be cutting. taxes are dema
the budget was written by the left of the democratic caucus to the left of president obama. i think that's probably correct. it's a very big-spending, big-tax budget. it is the wrong thing for america. it's the wrong thing for economic stability. it's the wrong kind of plan if made into law to help us grow our economy, create jobs, create wealth, get people over time and bonuses and pay raises, the kind of thing you have when the economy's growing. this budget is just the wrong medicine. i just have to say i strongly, strongly believe that it takes us in the wrong direction. what does it do at bottom? it raises taxes. it raises taxes, according to the chairman, by 1 point -- $1 trillion, $985 billion -- billion dollars. that's almost a trillion -- and we think it raises it $1.5 trillion. there is a reserve fund to make it easy to raise more taxes. i ask the chair to close that so it couldn't be used to raise taxes easily and see a decline which would continue to cause me to believe that that is an additional part. but regardless, a trillion dollars of new taxes is a huge, huge tax increa
, you have to think about president obama's second term agenda, which you know, parts of it may affect the unions, but he is focused on gun control, and immigration reform. in part affects the unions, but the unions are really trying to focus on the state level. fighting the battles at the state level, and having a difficult time. you can have the big guy in the corner but that does not necessarily mean he will be able to solve your problems. neil: that is assuming they will have him in their corner. might go the other way on the ystone pipeline. >> when did he put on his comfortable walking shows, join them on the picket line? he did not, he flew over one of the union battles in wisconsin. it is a complacent relationship, the problem is look at detroit. what happens when you can't bear costs of liberal policies and union labor costs and we have a town that 1 fro1 put 8 -- went from 1 put a million people. local your long-term goal and business model, unions will lose on thi one. neil: we'll see, we'll have you back later in the show, remember what former aig boss hank greenberg of on
